Affinity brought back the super popular V bars from a few years back. There are a few new wrinkles that Affinity threw in that we think you will like. They're slightly smaller than the classic 24" wide by 28" tall bars, coming in at 23" wide by 27" tall so you don't have to be the tallest of riders to use them. They're still not aimed at the younger crowed but open up the possibilities of riding Affinity bars to a broader audience. As usual, Affinity bars are available in either OVERSIZED or STANDARD outer diameters without a slit so they only work with SCS compression as sold. Another wrinkle that Affinity threw in is that they're now available in an array of colors, including the standard colors - Flat Black and Gloss Clear, as well as other color ways like Tiffany Blue and Trans Raspberry!
Affinity bars are 27" tall by 23" wide. Pro scooter bars that are 26-27.99" Tall are going to be perfect for the intermediate to pro riders who have a couple years of scooter riding under their belt. As a general rule, scooter bars should sit around waist height when standing on the deck. Affinity V bars are 22-23.99" Wide. Although bar height and width are highly influenced by personal preference, as a general rule, bar width should be similar to the rider's shoulder width.
Affinity V bars are a Y-Bar that Affinity designed for park and street riding. Your riding style determines the bar material that you should purchase: aluminum, steel, or titanium. Steel scooter bars are the choice of many street riders due to their durablity. The weld on a steel bar is much more durable than the weld of an aluminum bar and, as such, usually carries a 90 day warranty vs the standard 30 day warranty on an aluminum bar. If you just want a bar that is going to last, the Affinity bars is the bar for you. Scooter compression plays a very important role in deciding which pro scooter bar to buy. The Affinity scooter bars do not have a slit and are compatible with the following types of compression: SCS
Affinity V bars are just cool. The popularity of the Apex Bol bars has spurred most manufacturers of scooter bars to create something similar but we think Affinity has executed their version of V bars perfectly. Made in the US, Affinity V bars are extremely high quality and available in both standard and oversized versions, as with all Affinity offerings. At 23 inches wide by 28 inches tall, these bars give taller riders the perfect SCS bars to ride.
